  • Michael Mann Wins Prestigious Science Award. No, This Is Not a Joke…

    The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has given its prestigious award for Public Engagement with Science to climate scientist, Michael E. Mann. No, this is not a joke – though it should be. That’s Michael Mann as in the creator of possibly the most discredited artefact in climate science history: the ludicrous, fabricated “Hockey Stick.” That’s Michael Mann, the litigious activist and vexatious Twitter troll who dismisses any scientist who disagrees with him as a “denier”; who was exposed in the Climategate emails trying to ruin the careers of his opponents and attempting to shut down the...

    Former Vice President Al Gore has weighed in on the record cold and snow in the U.S. “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” Gore wrote on January 4 on Twitter. *snip* Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth did not warn of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming.
  • AAUP Assaults Science, National Security & Academic Freedom

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | December 12, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has issued a report on "National Security, the Assault on Science, and Academic Freedom" that might leave readers who have studied such matters scratching their heads. "The Trump administration's alarming hostility to science has exacerbated already troubling threats to academic freedom in the physical and natural sciences in two different areas," the AAUP states. "In the area of international scientific exchange, Chinese or Chinese American scientists have been targeted and charged with espionage." "The second area, the field of climate science, has been subjected to vicious attempts to discredit its validity, which have...

    ...He did even worse; he launched a campaign of punitive lawsuits against anyone who criticized him. He has sued Mark Steyn, National Review Online, and climatologist Dr. Timothy Ball. Mann shot himself in the foot with that last. For several years, Mann had refused to produce his data for the court (in support of his own case), claiming that it was “proprietary.” After missing a February 20th deadline, he now finds himself in contempt. Under Canadian law, the court is now required to dismiss the suit. John O'Sullivan goes into detail: "The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian...

    Apart from being a tetchy, hotheaded, rude, bullying, cackhanded, ignorant, malevolent and embarrassingly useless excuse for a scientist, Professor Michael Mann – the guy behind the serially-discredited Hockey Stick – is also the most outrageous liar. Mann used often to claim that he was a Nobel Prizewinner – till someone unhelpfully pointed out that he was but one of hundreds of scientists who contributed to Assessment Reports by the IPCC (which did win the Nobel Prize in 2007) This week the bald-pated shyster was up to his old tricks again, telling a string of porkie pies at a climate science...

In the event that I don’t, the thuggish Mann will come after my family, as has happened to my late friend Andrew Breitbart’s children.” This is how well-known political commentator Mark Steyn recently summed up his opinion about the libel suit filed against him by Penn State “climate scientist” Michael Mann, which is expected to be set for trial soon. “I did not seek this battle.… But I will not shirk the fight, and I will prevail,”...

    Leading climate doomsayer Michael Mann recently downplayed the importance of climate change science, telling Democrats that data and models “increasingly are unnecessary” because the impact is obvious. “Fundamentally, I’m a climate scientist and have spent much of my career with my head buried in climate-model output and observational climate data trying to tease out the signal of human-caused climate change,” Mr. Mann told the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee at a hearing.

  • Mongol Hordes Gave up on Conquering Europe Due to Wet Weather

    It has mystified historians ever since. After a string of major victories, the Mongol army suddenly retreated from central Europe in 1242. Some scholars claim Mongolian politics forced the withdrawal, while others credit the strength of fortified towns in present-day Hungary and Croatia. But Europe could have been rescued by its own bad weather, an analysis of tree rings and historical documents concludes. The Mongol cavalry fed its horses on the grass of the Eurasian steppe, says Nicola Di Cosmo of Princeton University, one of the study’s authors. A warm climate in the early 1200s helped make the grasslands lush...

    The climate alarmists have come up with a brilliant new excuse to explain why there has been no "global warming" for nearly 19 years. Turns out the satellite data is lying. And to prove it they've come up with a glossy new video starring such entirely trustworthy and not at all biased climate experts as Michael "Hockey Stick" Mann , Kevin "Travesty" Trenberth and Ben Santer. (All of these paragons of scientific rectitude feature heavily in the Climategate emails) The video is well produced and cleverly constructed - designed to look measured and reasonable rather than yet another shoddy hit...

    Roy W. Spencer believes in global warming. He just thinks it's the Earth's fault. Climate debate can be hazardous, but this former NASA scientist is preeminently qualified to weigh in: In 1989 Spencer and colleague John Christy pioneered a method of measuring global atmosphere temperature using satellite microwave sensors, an achievement that earned awards from NASA and the American Meteorological Society. Today Spencer oversees a research team for an Earth-monitoring satellite from his office at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. In his spare time he writes books throwing cold water on the idea that global warming is mostly caused...

    The slowdown of major Atlantic currents could lead to irreversible effects on Earth. A graph of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. (Photo : Stefan Rahmstorf/PIK) New research suggests the observed slowdown in major Atlantic Ocean currents is linked to the Greenland ice sheet's accelerated melting. The rapid melting of the ice sheet is believed to be a result of man-made global warming, and its impacts could have a major impact on marine ecosystems, sea levels, and weather systems across Europe and the United States, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) reported. "It is conspicuous that one specific area...
  • Global Warming: Michael Mann defamation lawsuit against CEI, Mark Steyn, NR, argued today, 11/25/14

    Background (from Sam Katzman, Competitive Enterprise Institute general counsel) going into the hearing of 11/25/14: “Regardless of where one stands on global warming, this case is about the First Amendment. Michael Mann’s defamation lawsuit is an unfounded attempt to chill speech on a major issue of public concern. Professor Mann is a high-profile figure in the global warming debate, and he himself is responsible for much of the overheated rhetoric in that debate. His complaint about CEI’s criticism of his statistical methods belongs in the arena of public discussion and scientific inquiry, not in the courts. “This is precisely the...

    Between 1989 and 2010, Congress rejected nearly 700 cap-tax-and-trade and similar bills that their proponents claimed would control Earth’s perpetually fickle climate and weather. So even as real world crises erupt, President Obama is using executive fiats and regulations to impose his anti-hydrocarbon agenda, slash America’s fossil fuel use, bankrupt coal and utility companies, make electricity prices skyrocket, and “fundamentally transform” our economic, social, legal and constitutional system. Citing climate concerns, he has refused to permit construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, and blocked or delayed Alaskan, western state and offshore oil and gas leasing and drilling. He’s proud that...

    WASHINGTON – News outlets, advocacy groups and fellow think tanks are jumping to the defense of a conservative-leaning D.C. policy center and publication being sued for libel by a scientist who didn't like what they had to say about his work on global warming. Michael Mann, a prominent professor of meteorology at Pennsylvania State University, has long been a target of climate change skeptics for his work claiming temperatures have risen dramatically in recent decades, and has sued before when groups tried to debunk his data. But this time, Mann is being accused of going too far with his case...

    As readers may know, Big Climate alarmist and self-garlanded Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann is suing me and others for mocking his hockey stick. The latest development is that my co-defendants have appealed to the DC Court of Appeals to hear their appeal on whether or not they're allowed to appeal to the Court of Appeals. If the appeal to the Court of Appeals on whether they can appeal to the Court of Appeals is successful, they'll then appeal to the Court of Appeals to hear the appeal proper.
